Welcome to Day 10 of the 5-Minute Marketing Game.
It’s simple physics. If I try to add one more cube of ice to a full glass of sweet tea, the glass will overflow. There’s simply not room for one more thing until something else is removed.
Yet how many times do I try to cram one more thing into my already full and overflowing life? It simply can’t be done without some spillage along the way.
Many coaches try to add business building activities ON TOP of their over-crowded, over-busy lives. It’s no wonder that they don’t succeed. It’s too messy. Too costly. It just can’t be done.
Business building takes time. And while jump starting your coaching practice by marketing 5-minutes a day is useful and fun, the truth is that building a successful coaching practice is going to take a lot more time.
But that’s okay. You have the time. We all do.
I know, you can’t add anything else to your crazy-busy life. But you can remove some other things to put business building in its place.
Sure, it’s hard. These are tough decisions. We all wish we could do it all. The good news is that we can do what matters most.
Prayerfully consider the calling God has placed on your life. Has He called you to influence the world by being a coach? If so, He has a different plan for all those things you are going to have to let go.
Trust Him. Step out in faith. Be the coach He’s called you to be. The world needs what only you can give.
